Lyrics

Written by: Mark Brine
 
Every empire has its downfallAnd a warning it didn’t hearI never thought I’d lose herEven right up ‘til... The last days of love...The last days of love
I was like a king in a palaceBut I never looked out to seeThe discontent all around meThat was leading to... The last days of love
Then the walls came tumblin’ downLike crashing thunder from aboveYeah, that’s the way it was... The last days of love
I took in all the pleasuresFrom the fruits of love she’d bearWhile I left her waiting hungryShe was starvin’ there... Until the last days of loveWhen she’d taken that enough©1989 Miss Rebecca Music (ASCAP)
